Sen. Harry Reid, leader of the majority Democrats in the US Senate, said Tuesday the Senate will face another round of votes on the Iraq war before the July 4 US Independence Day recess, a strategy intended to show that Democrats are not giving up trying to end the Iraq war. While the measures are unlikely to pass, the announcement comes as party leaders are under fire from many liberal supporters for letting legislation pass to finance the war through September. "We're going to hold the president's feet to the fire," Reid told reporters after emerging from a private meeting with Senate Democrats. Under Reid's plan, the Senate will cast separate votes whether to stop funding for combat next year, order troop withdrawals within four months, impose stricter standards on the length of combat tours and rescind congressional authorization for the Iraqi invasion.
